Fish were really active on Saturday, moved lots of fish on topwaters from 5 till dark. Had 3 blow ups, no hook ups. One was due to operator error, the other two were due to the fish not looking at what they were trying to eat...

Someone else on the lake caught a ski right at dusk, I could hear them screaming for joy all the way across the lake.

It is getting way too hot though, parts of the lake were 80 degrees, the main basin was 74 to 76. With no cool down in site, before long temps will be pushing 80 all over the lake.

I will be putting away the Muskie sticks until some cooler weather comes through - which might be October the way this summer is going.

Hopefully the temps cool down for the FM gathering planned, otherwise I would seriously consider changing the date. If you hook into a decent fish that puts up a fight - with these hot temps it's pretty much a death sentence...

We will be heading up there this weekend fishing mainly pikes and bass but we have caught some nice ski's doing that. Your right about the water temps are real hot and can be very damaging to the ski's so we'll have to be careful if we hook into one.

      Much different lake from a week ago. Snow on shores and ice in reeds. Water temps were down quite a bit. 42 in main lake 45 in shallow bays. Had a few followers on spinner baits but no hits.

      Went fishing for a couple hours yesterday. Water temp was 48-50. It was a nice day to be out on the water. My arms and neck are a lovely shade of red to prove it. Make sure you're smarter than me and toss a tube of sunscreen in the tackle box before you head out.

      Smoked up 4 for a test and really good!  Quite different than the crappies. Nice and oily and the skin peels right off. Scales are pretty big so a bit of a mess but easy peasy.

      I attended an event Saturday out of Everts. Eye bite was really slow for the 20 boats but a few nice fish were caught. Got into a buncha white bass at the end of the day and it was game on.   Brined some overnight and smoked em up to try them. We thru cranks and swim baits all day.
